Tonight witnessed the joining of Southern slang with Midwest swang. Tech N9ne and Paul Wall, headliners of the Fire and Ice Tour 2008, were in the house to rock the mic.

Paul Wall was a warm up act. Really? Tech N9ne must be sick to outshine the iceman himself.

Wall, along with his boy Skinhead Rob, performed crowd favorites such as “Grillz,” “I’m Throwed” and my guilty pleasure, “Chunk up tha Deuce.” Wall also performed cuts off his group Expensive Taste’s (Paul Wall, Skinhead Rob, Travis Barker) mixtape, as well as songs from his forthcoming album Fast Life.

Tech N9ne delivered ridiculous lyrics, pouring his heart out over dope beats. He closed his set with the high energized “I’m A Playa,” as well as addressing the fans: “I love you guys, because of you my kids are spoiled as shit.”
